Perfectly fair. I'll just need a few days to fully digest the album. I'm actually listening to it right now.

It is, but Remember The Mountain Bed is the best of the Mermaid Avenue discs. I may be a bit biased since it's lyrically my favorite song ever.

Indeed. I prefer Jeff Tweedy's live solo versions of just about all the Guthrie material. "Airline to Heaven" is also wonderful on the DVD. Best part of the DVD is that you can upload the audio onto your iTunes.

Okay, forgive me, I am new to this thread and I do not own any Wilco records or DVDs.

Please suggest my order for collecting them, so I can prepare my soul for Bonnaroo.

(last year, I finally 'got' Radiohead for the 'roo, even though their mainstage show there had lots of flaws).

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is my favorite, but really there isn't a bad one in the bunch. A.M. is a lot more twangy than their newer material (twangier?). I never got around to getting the second Mermaid Avenue album, but the first one is brilliant. I actually much prefer them live, though. I've got a bunch of their recordings. I'd suggest joining their message board Via Chicago once you check out a few albums, since you should be able to find some shows over there.

I saw them at a very small outdoor venue last summer and they were fantastic. I hope they're as good in front of a larger crowd.

Here's how I think you should go into it, album-wise:

1. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
2. Being There
3. A Ghost Is Born
4. Summerteeth
5. Kicking Television: Live in Chicago
6. AM

That's exactly the order I took. The only one I don't have yet is AM.

Weird...that's how I would've ranked them, too, putting Mermaid Avenue in between 2 and 3.
